This science seminar is presented by Carol Boggs, professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment at University of South Carolina.
Boggs writes "Environmental variation, in the form of weather, resources or community species composition, can shape observed life history traits. My research includes case studies on the operation of each of these forces. For this talk I will focus on the effects of nutritional resource availability on a suite of life history traits in the lab and tests of these results in the field in natural populations.” For much of this work, Bogg's lab uses butterflies and their host plants as the focal study system.
